Israel Steps Up Guard at Jerusalem Holy Site

Sunday, 14 August 2005 12:00 AM

Thousands of Jews are expected to attend prayer services at the compound through Sunday to commemorate the destruction of the biblical Jewish temples 2000 years ago. Muslim clerics have urged their followers to protect mosques on the holy site.

Meanwhile, Hamas leaders in Gaza held a rare news conference Saturday, vowing to continue their struggle against Israel.

The Palestinian Authority says security forces are fully prepared ahead of their deployment today to prevent any attempts by militants to disrupt Israel's withdrawal from Gaza beginning this week.
